Apart from enhancing the overall look of the kitchen, there are many other things for which we rely on our kitchen countertops. In order to make sure you get the most out of the countertops, it is crucial to install it properly and maintain it well.
Here we have listed some basic issues which arise with kitchen granite worktops and measures to fix them…
Rupturing of countertops:
There are many reasons for which granite worktops may get ruptured. Smaller rupture cracks will be fixed using adhesives, while for deeper cracks, the damaged part is removed by drilling and appropriate filler is used to fix it.
Water damage to countertops:
Just like any other thing, water can even damage your countertops. To deal with this issue make sure your dishwasher and sink are installed properly. Also, make sure to apply some sort of vapor barrier in your kitchen while installing the countertop.
Stains and dull looking countertops:
To deal with stains, it is ideal to use a befitting type of cleaner for your countertop. Also, if your countertop has lost its shine over a period of time, simply call in a professional and get it polished and buffed.
Chips and scratches on countertops:
We use heavy utensils, knives, etc. on our countertops and hence the surface getting chipped and scratched is normal. There are special repair pens and pastes available to fill in these scratches and chips.
If your countertop is damaged beyond repair, it is ideal to discuss about its repair or replacement with a professional. There are fortunately many options available in the market today and finding an affordable option won’t be an issue.
